Miss Jacqui’s Ballerinas Little Ballet 3-4 Class promotes confidence, encourages independence and group contribution as they participate with their peers. Your little dancer will love following our story which is told through movements, voice and music and because our theme changes fortnightly, one day your child may be tip-toeing through a jungle, and the next they are flying to the moon! These stories allow the opportunity for children to express themselves and share their imaginative ideas.

 

You will see your child learn the fundamentals of ballet as we include basic dance vocabulary such as First Position, Demi Plie and Grand Jete. These are all presented in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, and there is always an opportunity to discuss and improvise movements.

 

A wide range of props such as fairy wands, ribbons, musical instruments, scarves and many many more, as well as beautiful music that your child may recognise from famous ballets. Your little dancer will simply love to sway and twirl and leap with us in class!
